i went to sydney…

October 20, 2011

so, the weather is finally nice enough to be outside and wonder around and wear shorts and sandals. i went in to Sydney the other day and hit up The Art Gallery of NSW, The Powerhouse Museum to see the Love Lace exhibit, which was magical, and the opening of 10 Girls.10 Colours. an exhibition of contemporary jewellery and objects put on by tenmoregirls at the Sallerno Gallery in Glebe. I did a lot of walking and took lots of inside pictures, but not really any outside pictures, so I’ll do that on my next excursion.

The work that I got out of the wood fire kiln was so-so. A few nice cups. Today, I will open up the test kiln to stare at the 1st batch of glaze tests I’ve done. Over 60 tiles to gawk at this round. Anyway, here are some faves from the Love Lace show.
